Abu Radwan even claims that in one of the result score sets, the nonnative speakers actually tended to "give more weight to case than the native group" (Abu Radwan 2002:202).

The acquisition stages reported include 1) use of No in utterance-initial position, 2) use of no/not in utterance-internal preverbal position, 3) use of no with modals and auxiliaries as unanalyzed chunks, and 4) differential use of the negative particle from auxiliaries and models (see, for example, Schumann 1979).
